86

This is one of the better Assams I’ve had lately. Smells sweet and cocoa-like in the bag. On drinking it, it has that brisk, malty tasting Assam tea character, but also has an almost smokey or roasty taste to it that kind of reminds me of Keemun tea. I was going to add sugar, but I’m enjoying it so much without… it’ll have to wait until next time. The current batch is pretty reasonably priced. Iced I like it even more, tastes kind of like some of the more expensive Assam teas I like. Iced score 86, hot score 84.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
